Anera's DC Iftar
Date(s) - 04/11/2023
Come together to #ServeHope this Ramadan.
In celebration of Anera’s food package and voucher distributions in Palestine, Lebanon and Jordan, we invite you to join us for an iftar full of good food, good friends and good music.
This year, with your support, we are delivering aid in all three countries where Anera works. These food parcels and vouchers will allow families to gather for their evening iftar meals and enjoy a wonderful normal experience in these abnormal times.
Join our community for a delicious, traditional iftar provided by the
Tabard Inn, with live music by Arabic vocalist and oud player Laith
Alattar and poetry by Zeina Azzam. Your attendance will support
vulnerable communities in the Middle East during the holy month.
Funds raised go to sending food vouchers, food parcels and hot
meals to vulnerable families in Palestine, Lebanon, and Jordan.
Your support is zakat-eligible.
